Linking up with Shay, Sheaffer, and Mel.
 

And these are all the questions that I will answer!

Monday: Hamburgers or hot dogs, French Fries or Chips and fruit
Tuesday: Steak and Baked potatoes and a vegetable
Wednesday: Lasagna garlic bread and salad
Thursday: Grilled Chicken and sides

What I'm reminiscing about::
Since Hunter's birthday was this past weekend I have been reminiscing on all his past birthdays crazy how time flies! This was from last year it crazy how different a year can make!


 
What I'm loving::
 
 Loving that we are having a normal week here! No sickness or snow days!
 
What We've been up to::
 
Not a lot of anything basketball and hanging out on the weekends!

Hunter got these Mario decal stickers for his wall and he put them up all by himself on Sunday!
 
What I'm dreading::
 cleaning out the toy room... :( Y'all it's so bad!! I need to go through and donate a lot of toys, throw away the ones that are broken or pieces missing!
 
 
What I'm working on::
Homework, homework, and more homework.... I am really enjoying this math class which I was really scared of at first. So here goes my first month down of college!
 
What I'm excited about::
My recent Costco haul! When I go I stock up on certain things. I got meat for weeks, toilet paper, paper towels, laundry detergent, dishwasher pods, and how can I forget the 36 pack of fresh chocholate chip cookies for only $7.99. They are everything guys.
 
What I'm watching/reading::
 
Watching: everything guys. I have so many shows I watch during the weeks. But recently just started The Resident on FOX on Monday nights. It's on episode 3 and its so good!
THIS IS US comes on after the Super Bowl on Sunday and it is what we have been waiting for all season!! I can not WAIT!
 
 
It really has been a change to what all I read in December but it's been good so far! But I do have a long list ready for after I finish it!
 
What I'm listening to::
We have been jamming out the Kid's Pandora Radio in the car. Hunter is obsessed with all the songs from all his favorite movies Trolls, Moana, Minions, and Home. It also plays a lot of just up beat songs. I am loving all the Thomas Rhett, and Chris Stapleton, anything country I'm all about it.
 
What I'm wearing::
 
A lot of yoga pants, leggings, sneakers, t shirts, and my favorite North Face jacket. I have been eyeing these leggings and cow neck sweatshirt for weeks they are still in my cart just need to check out.. haha anyone else do that? Add things to your cart and just never check out? It's like I have to think about it for a week to make sure I really need it. Which 99% of the time I just do.
I can't ever say no to leggings....
 

 
 
What I'm doing this weekend::
 We have a basketball game on Saturday and probably hanging out that night and I know we are going to a Super Bowl party on Sunday!
 
What I'm looking forward to next month::
My 26th Birthday!!

We had a Mario party on Saturday and "It was Awesome" words from Hunter himself. :)

Hunter on our way to his party!!
Check out that hair spike! Looks so much older!!
We had his party at a local place HCA- Harricyn Athletics it is amazing for parties! This was our second year using them and it was good! We used building B and had basketball goals, rock wall, monkey bars, tons of dodge balls, kick balls, had Kid's Pandora radio on the whole time it was so good!

Y'all know I love my TV shows but Thursday night is the BEST!
 
Thursday night starts at 8:00 more like 9:00-9:30 for me once i get the kids to bed! Grey's is so good! Been watching this show since i was in middle school with my mom. I have watched all season's and still love this show. But nothing has been the same since the gang was together.
Grey
Yang
Karev
Stevens
O'malley
oh and how can i forget McDreamy? 
Anyway if you haven't started the show start it now!!!   
 

Next up is Scandal...
I binged watched this show on Netflix and it is so GOOD! At first it wasn't something i thought i would like. But after you start it's one you never want to stop! And this last season is just getting really good!!
How to get away with murder. 
This show you have to watch every episode and can not miss one second it has a lot of flashbacks in the first few episodes and its hard to follow but i promise keep watching you will end up loving it!

Three things right now...

So I have been searching around on things to write about.. and this topic sounded so much fun!
Three Things about each family member. Could be ANYTHING about them.

Hunter Lee


1.) This super fun loving boy will be 6 on Saturday! We are planning a Mario birthday party and he is soo excited! Even told my mom that if she doesn't bring a Mario present she can't come. 😜 Kids says the darndest thing right?
2.) Hunter started his 2nd season of basketball this past Saturday. I mean it still is called basketball if there are 10 little 4-7 year old kids running back and forth on the court looking around for their color wrist band to guard? I mean it is the cutest/funniest thing ever to watch! But he did shoot his 2 free throws and made them at the end! Either way he is excited to play! Oh and they got real jersey's this year and hunter wore his the WHOLE day and SLEPT in it that night!! He is obsessed to say the least!! 
Yep totally slept in this.
3.) Hunter started Kindergarten this year and as much as he is loving meeting new friends and seeing them everyday the school work is not something Hunter want's to do. It's like pulling teeth to get him to do homework. He even said after all these snow days lately that he would "fake sick" so he won't have to go. Needless to say he has went everyday.. Momma know's a sick kid and he has not been sick!!

 Brinley Lou

1.) Oh Brinley is one SASSY girl. She needs to have her "purse" full of all these randoms things she needs. Make-up brush, blush, Minnie mouse, goofy, flashlight, and some random items that she finds on a day to day basis.
Can you just see the "Diva" in this one?


2.) Brinley is loving her twin baby cousins! Aunt Kelsey got to watch her yesterday and she was all about those little guys! Kelsey said she was comparing her feet to their tiny feet and touching their little cheeks. I CAN NOT wait till they grow up to see them play together!
3.) Brinley is such a big helper these days! If it's close to bedtime and she needs to find her paci that Myself, Cody and Hunter could look for forever we ask her and its like she remembers exactly where she laid it down! Inside the little tent in our play room, under the window seal in our kitchen, in her purse she knows where to go and get it! But this goes for anything, her cup, a remote, our cell phones if you ever need anything you can ask Brinley and she will be on a mission to find that item! :) 


One of my all time favorite pictures of my babies. 
All pictures taken by the ever so talented Pam Hubbard. :)

Cody & Steph
 1.) Cody has been working of course and dreaming of sunny days with a lot and a lot of golf involved! He will be rooting for the Patriots at Superbowl this year of course!
2.) Myself started 3 online classes this semester and they have been doing actually really well! I am trying to stay on top and even beyond on my homework but I feel so determined to get through the next 3 years and just think that all my hard work has paid off after i have graduate.
3.) We both are dreaming of a vacation in July somewhere with a BEACH please! :)

Well that's my Three things post hope you stuck through the whole post!

Hope you guys have a wonderful Wednesday! I'll have a few more posts this week!

XOXO,
Steph
